Originally posted by FMFokay i have done my "homework" that was hard going, not sure my personal thoughts will be welcome, as usual.
Let him read the threads and make his own mind up.
leaving a side the name calling and abuse there were some interesting points.
Firstly the real evil is no doubt the child rapists, unfortunately they exist in all walks of life,seek protection in large organisations. social or religious it makes no difference, if they think they can get extra protection they will join.
It would be good if all said organisations, looked after our children, but sadly this is not the case, if an allegation is made to someone in power, they must notify the police straight away, no ifs or buts.
There lays the problem, innocent till proven guilty,would they risk the "no smoke without fire" that would follow even if the allegations were false.it's the leaders job to keep bad press from the media, but here it seems to have gone too far.By not telling the police they are wide open to accusations of a "cover up"
Obviously there was a cover up, again we will sadly never know the true amount of victims. the law must take precedent over any organisations "policies" again this is why the child rapist seeks protection in places where they will feel they can bend the rules.
i believe the JW and most organisations are made up of 99% good people, more must be done to get the 1% though.
This will be my only post on the dreadful matter, can't go on for 700 posts asking for proof, it's just my opinion, some might agree others won't, i mainly agree with you on the matter if that helps clarify my stance.
